The Foundations of Artificial Intelligence:
A Sourcebook

Derek Partridge + Yorick Wilks (editors)

Cambridge University Press 1990
A book review by Danny Yee © 1992
Some of the papers in The Foundations of Artificial Intelligence are reprints of seminal papers within the field, while others were commissioned specially for the volume. The topics covered include the position of AI as a discipline with respect to the other sciences and engineering, the methodology of AI research, the relationship of AI to philosophy of mind and neurobiology, and the connectionism debate; there are also some papers on areas of AI proper. Anyone interested in artificial intelligence should find lots of useful material in the volume and it's great for browsing in. The fifty page annotated bibliography is particularly impressive.

March 1992
